Advanced DWI techniques necessitate acquisition of a large number of image slices such as to obtain a greater number of b values for IVIM or more gradient directions for DTI. These increase the acquisition time, making it difficult to incorporate advanced techniques within the clinical workflow. The purpose of this study was to examine the utility of MB-SENSE acceleration for reducing scan times of breast DWI. Our qualitative and quantitative assessments showed MB-SENSE could dramatically reduce scan time without reducing image quality and accuracy of lesion ADC measures in breast DWI.
